What my family is doing to help Obama win

by singlemomseeking on October 15, 2008

If you’ve also wondered why my posts have been spotty on the weekends, it’s not because I’m busy dating. I’ve been volunteering for the Obama campaign. With my kid.

At “The Power of Words” fundraiser in support of Barack Obama last weekend at Ellen Sussman‘s (we raised $75,000!)

Mia Lipman, editor extraordinaire, and yours truly.

With Scott Hutchins, new Stanford faculty friend…

Here we are, listening to Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket, read.

In the meantime, my daughter and her friend ran a lemonade stand for Obama (they raised $100!) The girls went to the phone bank to drop off the cash. Everyone paused from making calls to applaud; one woman even got teary. (Yes, my kid said it was kind of embarrassing.)
